UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin re-elected for another term

Aleksander Ceferin will remain as UEFA president until 2023 after being formally re-elected to the role at the governing body's congress in Rome.

Aleksander Ceferin said that the danger of a Super League had been removed following "honest, direct and uncompromising" discussions between UEFA and the clubs.

Unopposed for the UEFA presidency, he was elected by the acclamation of delegates from Europe's 55 football associations at the governing body's 43rd annual congress in Rome.

The Slovenian football official succeeded Frenchman Michel Platini, who resigned in early 2016 after he had been suspended from all football related activities for four years.

"The only thing great about you would be your past", Ceferin cautioned clubs, saying teams following through on breakaway threats in 2016 "would have lost their status as great clubs in the hearts of the people".

The prospect of an OTT service to house competitions and content outside of the flagship Champions League and Europa League club competitions was first raised by Uefa marketing director, Guy-Laurent Epstein, in September.

"PSG and Manchester City are not too big for us [to punish] and we're not just talking about them", said Ceferin.

"I have a good feeling that we will start talking now that everyone has understood (that) without proper consultation we would not end up anywhere", Ceferin said. "My answer is no", said Ceferin.

Late past year UEFA confirmed plans to bring back a third European club competition from 2021/22, which would have 32 teams mainly from smaller member associations.

Ceferin acknowledged being relatively unknown when he was elected to replace Michel Platini, the France great who was banned by the Federation Internationale de Football Association ethics committee for financial irregularities.

He also defended his record since taking over with his most notable achievement being the introduction of term limits for UEFA presidents, to a maximum of three four-year stints. "I am the president of UEFA, a UEFA that can be proud of its past and confident about the future", said Ceferin.
